When Ross Cailotto, the owner of R.E.C. Service Corp., heard about the KE2 Evaporator Efficiency controller (KE2 Evap), he knew he had found the solution. Before having the KE2 Evap, replacing an old Beacon system with mechanical controls meant moving product from the walk-in to temporary storage while the refrigeration system was off for 8 hrs or more. This time, replacing the old Beacon system with the KE2 Evap reduced the repair time, despite pumping down the system to add an EEV and running the controller wiring. In addition, the KE2 Evap fulfilled Cailotto’s wish list for energy savings, much tighter temperature control, and elimination of the icing issue.
“The KE2 Evap provided more than I expected. We are able to use the KE2 Evap for system trouble shooting since it provides real-time superheat readings and electric valve position. Plus, we can view a graph of the coil and space temperature for the past five days of history,” said Cailotto.
